The par force playground at the Castle Lake

Playground inspired by Hillerød’s history

Now the little ones and the grown-ups can play their way into Hillerød's history and the UNESCO World Heritage, the par force hunting landscape.

A new and different playground was inaugurated in December 2018 in the park, Posen, which lies between Fisketorvet and the Castle Lake in Hillerød. It is inspired by and has references to Hillerød's royal history and the par force hunting landscape in St. Dyrehave and Gribskov forest, which surrounds the city.

Iconic gables

Two freestanding red brick gables in Renaissance style are the signature of the playground, with Frederiksborg's true Renaissance architecture as the background. But here the walls are turned into climbing wall and slide!

Landscape in miniature

The surrounding terrain is designed with small hills, bridges, paths, obstacle course and planting, which over time will create the illusion of forest and secret paths. There is a central star site, just like in the real par force hunting landscape.

Play creates light

On a new 'energetic', the children can generate light by physical activity. Also, there is a small castle pavilion to play in and a track for activity on play scooters.

For the little ones

For the youngest, there is a bird’s nest swing, wooden playground equipment and a sandbox with a table shaped like a coat of arms.

Picnic at the playground

Bring your lunch-box, there is plenty of room for a picnic on the lawn with views of both the castle, the castle lake and the busy bird life on the lake shore. Look forward to visiting a high-quality playground with built-in tales of the castle, town and landscape.
